Presentation 1

Title: EnergyPlus for Early Design and Single Zone Studies; David Fannon  
AIA, Senior Associate, Senior High Performance Specialist, Syska Hennessy  
Group, Inc.

Description: This talk focuses on using COMFEN to run simplified EnergyPlus  
models which inform early design-decisions and perform simple single-zone  
studies quickly and relatively inexpensively.  Using examples from recent  
projects, we will discuss ways to use COMFEN both an interface for rapid  
simulation and as a ready-made database that can be manipulated outside the  
GUI for comparative studies.  The presentation concludes with some notes on  
analyzing the results, the limitations of the tool and Quality Assurance  

About the Speaker: David is a New York- based member of Syska Hennessy's  
High Performance Solutions team, with broad perspective and experience as a  
designer, building science researcher and teacher.  His expertise lies in  
integrating research, analysis, and design to provide luminous, thermal and  
acoustic comfort while reducing resource consumption in buildings. In the  
summer of 2011 David traveled to Japan as part of the  
Architecture.Energy.2011 workshop to assist architects rebuilding after the  
natural and nuclear disasters. He spent two years as a student and  
researcher in the Center for the Built Environment at the University of  
California Berkeley, and is currently completing his degree. David holds a  
Bachelor of Architecture degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and  
is a registered architect in the State of New York.

Presentation 2

Title: N++: A demonstration of the latest GUI for EnergyPlus; Vladimir  
Bajic – Senior Energy Engineer and Software Developer

Description: N++ is a building energy modeling software created to emulate  
the architectural and engineering design process. As a front interface for  
the highly capable EnergyPlus simulation engine, N++ allows the user to  
input project information into the energy simulation in an intuitive,  
highly visible fashion that simplifies the energy modeling process for  
designers who are new to energy analysis. During the presentation Mr. Bajic  
will demonstrate the construction of an energy model in N++, exemplifying  
the innovative features that simplify the construction of complex building  
geometries, lighting designs and mechanical systems. The presentation will  
also demonstrate the flexible capability of N++ to build multiple  
parametric runs and produce an energy code baseline quickly and easily.

About the Speaker: Mr. Bajic is a mechanical engineer with over 16 years of  
experience in the HVAC industry as a designer, energy modeler and software  
developer. His experience is both international and domestic. Mr.Bajic’s  
main focus is building software applications that will help architects and  
engineers design more efficient buildings as part of an integrated design  
process. Mr. Bajic is currently a senior energy engineer at Viridian Energy  
& Environmental (a Vidaris company). He is also the founder of the  
ExpertApp (www.expertapp.com), a software company that is specialized in  
creating engineering and architectural cad-based applications focused on  
integrated sustainable design.
